Raft Building

Will you sink or will you float?

Children will use hand tools (including bow saws, hammers, hand drills etc) and up-cycled materials to build a life-sized raft to float in the creek.

There are no instructions, they need to work together to figure it out!

ADVANCED BOWS & ARROWS (8+)

For those older and wiser  Wildlings who have perhaps already conquered the whittling knife but are ready to create something more unique and challenging. A great opportunity to have some peer-to-peer learning as they gather materials, skillfully use tools and create new and inventive bows & arrows of their own design.
